Total GOTV Review

Total GoTV Review (a.k.a. Total Go TV) was tested by a test reviewer of streaming TV/VOD services and TV apps. I will cover the streaming service, app, content delivery, performance, interfacing, costs, and feature enhancements. In the end, you’ll be well-informed whether or not to take the next step.

When categorizing TV streaming services as the good, the bad, or the ugly, I can honestly say you can rule out the bad, and the ugly here. But what does this mean to you? Perhaps you’ve already visited the website and liked the low cost compared to other TV/VOD subscription services.

But the question remains do they have what you want and more? So let’s dive further into the review and you decide.

What It Does?

If you like having an all-in-one streaming TV/VOD entertainment source that delivers 100s of live channels including 1000s VOD movies and TV series, then this is what you’ll get. This includes the delivery of premium, some local/regional, and other channels. Major TV networks to watch the news, sports, movies, shows, etc. New movie releases, seasons, and episodes with many genres included.

While conducting my review, I found myself glued to watching my favorite channels, shows, movies, and sports.

Total GOTV Review

The sports sections deliver local, national, international, and seasonal sports including PPV events. And you may also find a regional sports channel. However, you won’t get all your US local channels from your area and the same goes for Canadian local channels.

The feature enhancements make watching TV online more enjoyable such as adding channels and VODs to favorites for quick easy access later. For instance, add to your favorites your local/regional channels. Then there’s the EPG (Electronic Programming Guide) and CatchUp TV. More on this later.

Who Is It For?

In my review of Total GO TV, I found that it mostly caters to North American (United States & Canada) TV viewers. But it doesn’t matter where you live in the world, anyone can get access. There is no restriction but this doesn’t mean that a country or ISP (Internet Service Provider) won’t restrict the TV viewer. You’ll find Spanish channels and VODs delivered including some Italian channels.

There’s entertainment for the entire family. Kids have sections of channels, TV shows, and movies for them. Also included are Adult channels that are locked by default. If you are serving in the US or Canadian armed forces but stationed overseas, this is one way you can continue watching your favorites.

IP lock IPTV services like this one are great for newcomers to Internet TV who prefer to keep things simple. There’s far less streaming content, countries, features, and navigation but still delivers a lot of entertaining streaming content.

What is Total GO TV?

What you have here is a streaming TV/VOD service (a.k.a. IPTV service) that delivers live channels and VODs across your IP address. This is not a Satellite, Cable, or Fiber TV company. It’s the opposite but provides many of the same content at a cheaper price.

There is no hardware to install such as an antenna, set-top-box, or receiver to get set up. However, this streaming TV provider does point you to a streaming TV device if you want it. As for me, my go-to streaming device is the Amazon Firestick which is compatible with most IPTV services and apps.

You may want to invest in an indoor HDTV antenna to scan all your local TV channels since you only get some US local channels in your area and the same for Canadian local channels.

IP Lock System

The Total GOTV supports the Nora Go app which incorporates an IP Lock system. You are prohibited from changing your primary IP address. This means you cannot take your compatible streaming device with the app installed over to a friend’s or family member’s household to watch TV online.

No other person is allowed to share your account, and you cannot use a VPN service to hide your IP address. However, you can use a smartphone with the app installed outside of your primary IP address when connected to any WiFi area in your travels.

Compatible Streaming Devices, Apps & Requirements

When conducting my test review of Total GOTV, I used my 4K Amazon Firestick. If you are going to use that device or Fire TV, I advise using the latest version to avoid issues. There are more compatible devices you can use whereas you might have one or more of them already.

Supported TV Player Apps

It’s free to download and install the Nora Go app or XPlay app which can be found in the Google Play Store, Apple Play Store, and Roku Channels Store. However, when I installed Nora Go on my Roku there was an error that prevented activation. I contacted support and they said there was an issue and to install XPlay on the Roku instead.

Both apps work the same way and use the same platform. You can also use the same activation/login credentials for either one. You must activate the app to get access to all the TV/VOD content to watch online. Understand no TV app delivers any streaming content on its own. You need either a free trial or a subscription from the streaming TV/VOD service which in this case is Total GO TV.

Compatible Streaming Devices

  • Computers (Mac & Windows)
  • Tablet
  • Android (Phone, Box & TV)
  • Devices w/ Android OS (Firestick, Fire TV & NVIDIA Shield)
  • iOS/Apple (iPad, iPhone & Apple TV)
  • Smart TVs (LG & Samsung)

You are allowed up to 7 device connections at one time. You can get set up in different locations in your household. Each person in your household can watch something different from the other.


To make everything work, you will need 4 requirements whereas one or two you probably already have.

1. Internet Connection

You should have high-speed Internet. You can connect your smart TV to an ethernet cable (hardwire) and the remainder of your other compatible devices to WiFi in your household. I suggest a minimum of 30 Mbps download speed, 60 Mbps would be better. However, you might want to think about having 100 Mbps or more.

If you experience consistent buffering/poor streaming performance, consider the amount of Internet connection speed you have. You may need to contact your ISP (Internet Service Provider) to increase the speed which comes with an additional cost.

2. Streaming Devices

I already listed the streaming devices further up. You can use a compatible smart TV, Android, iOS/Apple, Computer, Device w/ Android OS, Tablet, or Roku. Or any combination of devices you want, up to 7. As for the Firestick and Fire TV devices, I recommend using the latest version. I used the 4K Firestick in my test review of Total GOTV.

3. TV Player App

Download/Install the Nora Go app or XPlay app. I recommend Nora Go and use Xplay for Roku. The app doesn’t deliver streaming TV/VOD content by itself. It requires activation to get access to the streaming content. The activation/login credentials come from the TotalGoTV service.

The credentials include the Provider ID, Username & Password including 7 Device PIN Codes.

4. Streaming TV/VOD Service Provider

Everything starts and ends with the streaming TV/VOD service–in this case, Total GOTV. When registering for the free trial or subscription, you receive emails immediately. One important email will include the activation/login credentials. Always remember the brand name and how to find the TotalGoTV website. Save all emails so you can find them later.

You get support from them and no place else online. If you don’t choose AutoPay when registering, you must return to their website to renew the subscription when time.

EPG (Electronic Programming Guide)

This is a TV guide that you can program by selecting a category of live channels to load the TV guide. The channels are listed in their respective time slots with program descriptions. For instance, you can select ‘US | All’ from the EPG category and load only those channels to the TV guide.


CatchUps Category

If you were hoping for CatchUp TV, you’re in luck. Not all IPTV services deliver this streaming content. There is no feature to record live channels on your end. Instead, Total GOTV handles all recordings for you for up to 7 days and then refreshes the recordings when time. Many different TV shows from major TV networks are recorded, many of which are from premium channels.

CatchUp TV

Free Trial, Subscriptions, Support & Money Back Guarantee

The free trial doesn’t require giving up your credit card information upfront. Therefore, you are not automatically thrown into a subscription payment once the trial is over. The two low-cost service plans are indeed comparable to other IPTV services. But you can see the major difference in prices compared to cable, satellite, and Fios TV companies.

24-Hour Free Trial: $0.00 ***No credit/debit card
NOTE: Also include 7 device connections and PPV events.

Today’s Special Discount @ 20% Off – Use Code: U6SYCNYZ

2 Subscription Plans: 1-Month @ $30.00 and 3-Month @ $80.00

NOTE: There is a toggle button on their website that lets you choose ‘AutoPay’ or choose Monthly or Every 3 Months. If you don’t choose ‘AutoPay’, you will need to revisit the TotalGOTV website to pay again once the 1-month or the 3-month ends. Based on whichever one you choose. You are not locked into any one subscription. You can switch up and choose to pay the other.

The money-back guarantee is for 30 days which is very generous. Many IPTV services give you far less. You have that length of time to request a refund. Hopefully, this will never come to fruition.

You must return to their website to get support. Hours are from 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Eastern time. You should use the chat box to get a faster response. There’s also a contact form on their website.

Many individuals fail in organizational skills which leaves them confused and lost after making a purchase. Be sure to save all important emails from the streaming TV/VOD service and know where to find them later. Always remember the name, TotalGoTV, and bookmark/save their website so that you can find them that way as well.

Always get in the habit of checking your Junk or Spam mail folder for important emails. If you find any there, move them (drag & drop) into your regular email inbox.

My Account

You will find the ‘My Account’ on the Total Go TV website to log in. When you register to get the trial or subscription, you must enter your email address, and create a username and password. Write them down because you will need them to log into the ‘My Account’.

This is where you find your order/invoice/account information including activation/login credentials for the app. You can also renew the subscription there. You will get all of this information via email also.

Why You Should Choose Total GOTV?

The interfacing in how the app connects and works with the IPTV servers was quick and easy. You don’t need a manual of any kind to navigate. You’ll have no trouble finding where you want to go and finding what you want to watch online.


There are categories such as TV, Movies, TV Shows, CatchUps, and EPG to easily find the sub-categories with channels, VOD movies, and VOD TV series. The entertainment delivered has something for everyone. If you love sports, this IPTV service has you covered in more ways than one with both live and on-demand sports including PPV events.

If movies are your thing, you get access to premium live movie channels and VOD movies with genres, and new releases. Those who love watching TV series can get them on-demand whenever they want, anytime, anywhere. This includes the seasons and episodes including genres.

More to Your Delight…

This Total GOTV review also covered the CatchUp TV section. You don’t record but they do. There are 7 days’ worth of recordings of TV shows from many premium channels. Simply find/select the network you want, choose the day number, and find the TV shows from the list to watch it.

The overall experience I had was second to none. I was surprisingly pleased and feel confident that individuals reading this review will be happy with their findings.

Performance, Interfacing, and Content Delivery


Just so that you know there are two sides when it comes down to performance. On one hand, you have the user’s end, and on the other end, you have the streaming TV/VOD service with the TV app connected. It’s important to have your end correct. You should use a new or fairly new compatible streaming device with internal files updated. Be sure to update your device.

I recommend having 100 Mbps if not more to prevent consistent buffering and poor streaming performance as much as possible. You can start with less Mbps but should you undergo a streaming performance issue, you might want to think about increasing the Mbps if under 100.

This streaming TV/VOD services (hence: IPTV services) that I test reviewed came out with flying colors–no major issues. You can always go to YouTube to find videos on poor streaming performance/consistent buffering from your device.

Additional Info…

There’s nothing wrong with contacting the IPTV service to see if they are experiencing an issue on their end. They might be aware of this already and will tell you. Otherwise, if there is no issue on their end, then you need to check on your end.

Total GO TV gives you 7 device connections so use your compatible devices to test. If you have two Firesticks in your household with the TV app installed and connected, see if both have the same issue. This way you can narrow down the issue. If both devices are having the same issue, then I would look further into those devices or Internet connection speed.

This is where YouTube video tutorials can help. Maybe you used up a lot of your device’s storage and need to remove some of your apps. But there could be another reason causing the issue. You could also try registering with a different IPTV service supporting a different app. Find one with a free trial to test.

Interfacing & TV Channels/VOD Delivery

You will experience ease of use, including a fast-smooth interface when the app is installed, activated, and connected. Live channels play quickly with no consistent buffering or streaming performance issues. Same thing with VOD movies and TV series. There’s some delay when playing VODs which is to be expected.

Navigating through the app is easy enough that a child can do it. This does not require reading a guide or instructions needed to use the features. The best thing to do is either enter into the free trial to test or watch my video tutorials. Learn more below…

Pros and Cons

Rest assured there’s nothing to worry about with Total Go TV. The downsides are at a minimum and you have the free trial to test on your end before shelling out any money. What’s unusual is most IPTV services that offer a free trial don’t include PPV events, and many only allow one-device connection.

Here, you get everything in the free trial just like paying for the subscription.


The app works seamlessly when connected with the IPTV service servers. No delay in playing channels. There’s a little delay in playing VODs which is expected. There’s enough entertaining content to keep you busy and if you are in the mood for spree TV, go right ahead. Navigating and finding what you want comes with ease.

To take your TV to another level, you have CatchUp TV with TV show recordings from popular TV networks updated every 7 days. The EPG (Electronic Program Guide) also enhances Web TV enjoyment. You can choose a sub-category of channels to load the TV guide with only those channels play to watch.

The entire family will enjoy watching their favorites online using any compatible streaming device. You are allowed up to 7 device connections simultaneously which gives more connections than most streaming TV/VOD services.


What can I say, there’s not much here. No IPTV service (hence: streaming TV/VOD service) is perfect. You’ll come across some non-working channels, perhaps some VOD movies or TV series. However, you have the go-ahead to contact support to fix the issue. I can’t fault the limited number of local channels for your area because all IPTV services do the same thing, more or less.

There are some sections of content in the TV player that are non-working but I’m assuming this was done on purpose whereas support is already aware. Right now, I’m just knitting picking as the vast majority of the content delivered is working. There are just too many of them to test but I did get the one-month subscription to test fully. Should I find anything negative later on, I will update this review.


I give this streaming TV/VOD service a high rating and recommend testing them to see if they meet your approval. You get all that you asked for. The price is right (low-cost), entertaining streaming TV/VOD content is very good, has great technology, and delivery of live channels/VODs is good too. You get a one-source for all TV and VOD entertainment that keeps you in one place.

Total GOTV updates and adds new streaming TV/VOD content from time to time. This is the luxury you get when paying a low price to have a service manage and update everything in a timely fashion. This is not the case with freebie streaming TV/VOD services you find online. Many of them have non-working channels or streaming content not as entertaining as this IPTV service.
